Celebrated playwright Kate Mulvany brings to the stage Park’s revered trilogy – Missus, The Harp in the South and Poor Man’s Orange. This epic stage adaptation spreads Park’s beloved stories across two equally ambitious plays, The Harp in the South: Part One and The Harp in the South: Part Two. The two parts stand alone, but together they offer over five hours of unforgettable, exuberant theatre. First appearing in 1947, Ruth Park’s trilogy brought to life a carnival of characters. Full of humour, romance and spirited rebellion, it captured the city’s best and worst features with a riveting, unflinching and endearing honesty. They encourage you to experience the entire epic. Viewed together they are a vivid and immersive narrative of Australian culture, and a memorable theatrical experience.
